Kaduna premier not worried by defections

11 February 2014, 22:23

Abuja - The Deputy Governor of Kaduna State, Ambassador Nuhu Bajoga, has described the defection of some members of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in his state as “inconsequential” and “Incapable of altering the position of the party as the choice of the people.”

Bajoga said the place of Kaduna as the “fortress” of the PDP was bolstered by the credible performance of the party in the state since 1999.

“The PDP has been in power since 1999 and within this period, has left indelible marks in the state. In the past few years, security was the major issue but we can proudly say the matter has been brought under effective control in the last twelve months,” he added.

He commended the choice of Dr Adamu Muazu as the national chairman of the party, saying his leadership could not have come at a better time.  

Muazu took over from Bamanga Tukur, who resigned amid infighting within the ruling party.

“For those that know Muazu as an honest and straight forward person, a man with brilliant ideas, his leadership of the party could not have come at a better time. We are confident that with him, all the ground lost in the past few years would be regained in no distance time. The result is already manifesting,” said Bajoga.
